I hardly ever use one on my desktop. i am am getting a clevo p150em with msata 128gb and 750 gb hdd 7200. would it be better to get rid of the optical drive and get a 256 m4 ssd with a 750 gb hdd 7200, and skip the msata?
my last laptop did not have a drive, and even though I wouldnt have used it much it was a pain to have to go look for drivers online. I just replaced my broken laptop and opted for a BD-ROM drive. Bluray read only with a dvd/write combo. I think I'll be happy knowing I can watch a movie anywhere.
